ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE EAR is a series of hour length listening programmes exploring historic places and artefacts that have sonorous or musical stories to tell. Created by musician and composer Chris Cundy each episode features interviews with a range of historians, crafts people, subject experts, musicians, performers and songwriters

In this episode Chris Cundy looks at an illustration of a speaking tree that changes sex from male to female during the night in the pages of the Shahnameh, the ancient Persian Book of Kings. We also talk to musician, songwriter and former tree surgeon Baby Dee about her relationship to trees and their recurring theme in her own songwriting. Plus singer and songwriter Ladan Hussein (aka Cold Specks) reads a short text describing the magnetic sound of trees

In partnership with Gloucester Cathedral and 1381.online and supported by Help Musicians UK and Arts Council England
